Antiques de Provence in New Orleans

When we were in New Orleans in April, I stumbled across this amazing store Antiques de Provence.  This is the real deal folks.  Beautiful antique pieces from France.  It is truly amazing, and I could have spent all afternoon day dreaming.  Most pieces are way out of my budget.  A girl can dream…

Designers Guild

I’ve mentioned before that I’ve never been a huge fan of wallpaper. Once you tried to peel wallpaper off of a wall, you say to yourself, “I will never put up wallpaper again!”  Well, I guess I’m far enough removed from my last horrible wallpaper experience because I ordered four rolls for my powder bathroom.  Even my husband (the wallpaper hater) loves what I’ve chosen!  I chose this wall covering from Designers Guild:

It is a light purpley-pink.  The marble on the floor is purple, grey and lilac.  I decided not to hide from the crazy marble.  I’m just going to play it up.  It’s going to look fun and elegant at the same time.  I’m excited to have some color in my home!

Designers Guild is a fabulous company out of London.  It is owned and run by Tricia Guild and her brother.  If you love color and pattern, you will love all Designers Guild products.  The patterns and colors speak for themselves, so I’m just going to post a lot of pictures for you!  They carry everything from linens and pillows to designer fabric and wall coverings.  AND they’re having a big SALE right now, so find something beautiful for yourself!
